  3. LeastProtocol: Minimizing Attack Surface by Removing Unwanted Protocol Features

    SBC: Trail of Bits, Inc.            Topic: N18AT018

    Standard protocols such as SSL, SSH, etc. are implemented as one-size-fits-all libraries. To maximize compatibility, these libraries implement rarely used features that increase attack surface. Examples include the SSL Heart Beat feature (HeartBleed) and weak SSH ciphers (LOGJAM).The Navy would like to reduce software attack surface by removing unused protocol features. Our proposal, LeastProtocol ...
